Intrepid Journeys - Uganda (Roger Hall)

Television (Full Length Episode) – 2005

Parental Guidance

Playwright Roger Hall visits Uganda in Africa for this Intrepid Journey. He finds the going tough at times, particularly some rough accommodation and worries about malaria, but delights that he got to see lions and gorillas in their natural habitat, and is moved by the efforts of the Ugandan people to triumph over their "hideous recent history". En route Hall goes white water rafting on the Nile, and gets a memorable warning speech about one of the rapids by a guide. He "loses his Nile virginity" after getting tipped out, and ending up under the raft.

...the bottom part of the rapid where we usually run is a class five, and that's the one we call the bad place. That's the place where the people swimming a lot, and boat go over so they get under for like five seconds. So take a deep breath, and enjoy your swimming.
